Don't cut the green leaves off!!!  ... the colour will develop when you give them enough sunshine

I think they need lots of direct sunlight ... they can cope with it ... this will allow the colouration to develop.

 Trying not to think about it LilyP 

It looks as if our huge grape crop will ripen just as we leave for the West Country ... our runners and courgettes are slowing down so the neighbours will be welcome to help themselves to them and the raspberries ... I'll pick as many "green but ripening" tomatoes as I can before I go and put them on the sideboard to ripen while we're away.  

The sweet peas Wonky gave me are still flowering like mad ... never known any like them ... amazing! 

And some sad news ... Wonky's Lovely Hub lost a sister yesterday ... she'd had breast cancer but caught it too late and it returned with a vengence ... she still has a young family ... so sad ... it's a large but close family, with some in Antigua and some over here ... his Mum's still hale and hearty too, although not young any more ...

Chickweed ... Pull it up, wash it and eat it as salad    Very good in an egg sandwich.
